We turn our eyes to God, and look beyond the clouds into that great immortal home in heaven, where tear drops are not welcome, family members are in the immortal home surrounded by angels in an atmosphere of peace and serenity. and we can have the assurance that one day God shall wipe away all tears from our eyes.

They are in the immortal home

Lord, please help us in this time of loss and overwhelming grief, to comfort the living with hopes for the future, and to remind ourselves of some of the wonderful memories we have all shared with loved ones; even now as their shadow brushes pass our continuing existence, and their spirit embraces eternity, we can tell their story to the generations to come.
some of the fondest memories down the years have been shared with close family members, a favorite uncle, that special person that you have always look forward to see, suddenly they are no longer around to share in the witty sense of humor or to sit around the diner table with, but their memories will live on for a long time.

Although we do not understand why life can be with so much pain and heartache. Our lives would have been empty, if we had not known our loved ones, their memories will become emblematic treasures, to share with others the pleasure their lives gave. To be with them, and challenged by them.

Putting up with troubles and worries is part of life's development process, when we lose friends; we lose more than property, we lose an intricate part of ourselves. Our prayer could be a testimony for others, touched by the feelings, of our infirmities, our loss; the way we feel, sometimes mere words cannot describe the agony. We give all your worries and cares for you God, for you alone cares, about our deepest concerns, you will sustain us and turn the pain into joy.

If we feel that we have no strength left, but only the will to hold on, even though we are in danger of being overwhelmed by what is laid upon us. We can cast all our burdens upon the Lord; we may also look to God for grace and strength, and can feel assured that the Holy Spirit will comfort our love ones. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34 Heavenly father, bring a sense of understanding and comfort to us, to the family and friends, when hands and feet have failed, and lips and mouth have surrendered their last words, we remember the memories of our love ones when they are gone, gone far into that silent land. When we can no more day by day, take their hand, and tell of the future you have planned. But you can hold our hands and help us to go on till the close of our journey.

We turn our eyes to God, and look beyond the clouds into that great immortal home in heaven, where tear drops are not welcome, family members are in this immortal home surrounded by angels in an atmosphere of peace and serenity.
knowing that one day God shall wipe away all tears from our eyes, and there shall be no more crying, neither sorrow, no pain, for the former things will pass away. We seek to find the strength to trust in your faithfulness.

And will wait on you, not in despair; but in the hope, not in anxiety, but in serenity, but if we should forget for a while, and afterwards remember to pray, then our grief will leave a light glowing in the vestige of the thoughts we had. I will quietly wait for your salvation. When my heart is crushed, I know that you will not abandon me forever.

Please show me your compassion, Lord. Help me through the pain so that I will hope in you again. I believe this promise in your Word to send me fresh mercy each day. Though I can't see past today, I am torn and bruise inside, with only a flicker of smile silently waving, but I trust your great love will never fail me.
